23rd IEEE-CS Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T),
Pittsburgh, PA, USA, March 9 - 12, 2010

Bridging the Gap between Academia and Industry in Software Engineering
Education and Training

http://conferences.computer.org/cseet/2010/ <http://cseet2010.dei.uc.pt/>

Call for Participation

Industry and Academia have always had differences in how they perceive
what needs to be taught and what needs to be used for effective
software development. Ongoing advances in technology, in software
processes and in development methods, makes it important to focus the
teaching on enduring principles. These advances also make it difficult
for students and practitioners to balance using what they learn with
the pressures of keeping up with new information, tools and
requirements as they become an industry mainstream.

An effective dialogue between industry and academia that bridges the
divide and generates a real collaboration to address these issues has
not yet been formalized. It is this year's goal to bring together
academics and industry professionals to form a community that does
exactly that.

To do this, we have focused this year's conference program on looking
at innovative ways to bridge the gap between industry and academia by
bringing into the classroom tools, methods and techniques that make for
effective leaning. By innovating how we teach software engineering and
the choices we make for what we teach we hope to be training the
student of today to adapt to the ways of tomorrow.

Our keynotes this year feature a mix of prominent industry thought
leaders, such as:

- Dr. Anuj Dhanda, CIO of PNC Bank
- Dr. Nick Bowen, VP for Technology at IBM
- Dr. Alistair Cockburn of the Agile Manifesto
- Prof. Raj Reddy, Carnegie Mellon, (Turing award winner)
- Prof. Mary Shaw, Carnegie Mellon

Of particular interest to trainers and educators will be the set of
practical workshops on the following topics:

- Effective Learning and its impact on Teaching and Course Design
- Using Card, Board and Video Games in Software Engineering Education
- Teaching Using the Learn By Doing approach
- Using Improvisation in teaching
- Puzzle Based Learning
- Using Japanese MANGA Narrative in teaching Software Engineering
- Using Film making methods to enhance Software Design
- Enhancing Your Teaching using Tablet PCs
- Agile Estimation, Distributed SCRUM and Nano-Incremental Development

Academy for Software Engineering Educators and Trainers (ASEET)

A special one-day Academy for Software Engineering Educators & Trainers
will be held on Friday, March 12, 2010. The purpose of the Academy is
to provide an opportunity for software engineering educators and
trainers to learn from master instructors in a highly dynamic,
hands-on, interactive environment.

The focus of this year's ASEE&T is going to be "Teaching Software
Architectures".

The following master educators confirmed their participation:

- Dr. Len Bass, Software Engineering Institute, Leading co-author of
  Software Architecture in Practice, (2nd edition, Addison-Wesley, 2003)

- Prof. David Garlan, Carnegie Mellon University, Co-author of Software
  Architecture: Perspectives on an Emerging Discipline (Prentice Hall, 1996).

- Dr. Eric Dashofy, the Aerospace Corporation, Co-author of Software
  Architecture: Foundations, Theory, and Practice (Wiley, 2009).

Bridging the Gap between Academia and Industry in Software Engineering
Education and Training

http://conferences.computer.org/cseet/2010/

The CSEET conference is returning to Carnegie Mellon University once again
where it started 15 years ago.

Advances in technology and communications enable new applications to be both
conceived and made feasible every day. The implication of this is a
continuous demand for highly skilled software engineers. However, there is a
marked skills shortage occurring both in the IT professions and in
engineering: on the one hand students are not entering SE programs in the
numbers industry needs and on the other, industry reports graduates are
lacking in skills considered important - in the newer technical areas and in
business and soft skills. In short, there are gaps to be bridged. In order
to provide the profession with appropriately educated individuals with the
right skills who are well trained as software engineers, the education and
training techniques we currently use, need to change.

CSEE&T 2010 will include research and experience paper presentations
(including short papers), panel discussions, workshops and tutorials and the
Academy for SE Education and Training (ASEE&T). We invite high quality,
original papers from all Software Engineering educators, trainers, users and
providers, covering the conference theme and related topics.  Submissions may
address all areas of curriculum development, empirical studies, personal or
institutional experiences, conceptual or theoretical work.

The program will provide numerous opportunities for academic and industry
participants to interact and learn from each other. Join us in exploring how
we start to bridge the Academic/Industry divide in SE education and training.

Topics of Interest

Papers are invited addressing (but not restricted to) the following Topics:

- Education theory and pedagogy
- Curriculum and teaching materials (either in general or related to
specific SE areas)
- Learning environments
- Performance evaluation and assessment
- Issues of eLearning for SE
- Software engineering professionalism
- Education & training for current SE practices
- Internship and projects for students and graduates
- Case studies of educational or training practices
- Industry-academia collaboration models
- Project management for SE


Papers covering the above topics in the following areas are particularly
sought:

- Large-scale Distributed SE
- Collaborative Environments and Computer Supported Cooperative SE
- Tools and Processes for Distributed multi-site SE
- Agile Methods in Practice
- Component-based SE
- Technology Transfer
- Software Engineering Ontology

Research Papers

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research in all
areas of SE education and training. Papers describing theoretical or
empirical research, new techniques and tools, novel interpretation and
in-depth case studies are all welcome. Submissions should be original and
should not have been published previously or currently be under
consideration for publication elsewhere.

Paper submissions will be reviewed and evaluated based on originality,
technical quality and relevance to the field of software engineering
education in accordance with IEEE requirements. As in previous years, the
proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
One author from each accepted paper is required to register as delegate and
present the paper at the conference.

    Experience Reports & Short Papers

The objective of experience reports is to discuss results (both good and
bad), obstacles, and lessons learned associated with education and training
for SE from the perspective of practitioners in industry or government. Such
"real world" experience shared with educators provides valuable input into
future directions for education and allows others to learn from successes
and failures.

Short paper submissions that address software engineering education and
training topics are also invited. Short papers may discuss an idea at an
early stage, or a promising idea that may lack complete evaluation.
Each accepted experience report and short paper will be presented by an
author in a conference session, and will appear in the IEEE digital library.
The abstract only of short papers will appear in the conference proceedings.

    Posters

Emerging ideas for research, teaching practice, or tools can be presented as
posters. The posters are evaluated based on their originality and the
possible future contribution to the field of SE Education & Training.
Submissions from students are encouraged.

    Workshops & Tutorials

Workshop and Tutorial proposals that have practical appeal to the SE
education and training community are sought. These enable participants to
exchange experiences and opinions, or learn more about a topic relevant to
the conference theme. Please submit your proposals detailing the topic,
theme and goals, intended audience and the preparation required of them,
presenter/s and their affiliations. Activities and format along with
anticipated time requirements should also be provided.

    Panels

Panel sessions allow the audience to interact with panelist who provides an
engaging, informative and entertaining discussion of a timely topic from
multiple perspectives. Please submit your proposals detailing the topic and
how it meets the needs of the CSEE&T audience, biographies and position
statements of each of the panelists and a biography of the proposed moderator.
